For decades, communities have celebrated Juneteenth (now recognized as a federal holiday) as a way to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans across the United States. It marks the official day, June 19, 1865, that enslaved people of Galveston, Texas, received news of their freedom — more than two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

 

Across the country, celebrations are often marked with parades, festivals, and family gatherings to honor the cultural and historical significance of the holiday while also providing a space for education and reflection.
